Monday, August 11, 2014
"PURE Love" actor Matt Evans is happy for his former on-screen love team, Melissa Ricks, who is expecting her first child with her non-showbiz boyfriend.
In a Cinema News interview aired over the weekend, Evans said that he was one of the first few close friends of Melissa in showbiz who learned about the baby news.
"Nag-text siya sa akin. Sabi niya, 'Uy, ninong ka'. Inisip ko muna sinong may anak. Ang tagal (ko pa nag-isip), in-absorb ko muna and 'yung next text siya na may smiley face and 'yun, tumawag na ako. Pagka-usap namin sinabi na niya sa akin," he said.
Evans added that he is happy for his former leading lady as he recalled their earlier conversations about settling down, starting their own families and having kids.
"Sobrang saya and nakakatuwa kasi dati pinag-uusapan lang namin kung anong magiging mukha ng mga baby namin, pero ngayon magkakaroon na din siya," the actor added.
Evans is hopeful that Ricks will give birth to a baby boy so they could pair him up with his daughter, Haylie Marley.
"Excited na ako and sabi ko kay Melissa sana lalake para love team (sa anak ko). Pero gusto niya din daw babae," he said.
The actress announced her pregnancy earlier this month.
Ricks, who started her career via the reality talent show Star Circle Quest, said she is a bit scared but excited to have a baby.
"It's such a different feeling. It's a huge responsibility. Nakakatakot, nakakanerbiyos, but I'm very, very happy," she said. (Sunnex)
